Basic Buddhist Studies Program
"All human accomplishment is preceded by correct cognition."
Mind and Mental Process (Lo Rig in Tibetan) begins with the study of mind, both in its valid and distorted forms along with the relationship between subject and object, and between thought and reality. The second part of the class introduces us to Buddhist psychology, where we'll study the various positive & negative emotions as well as the cognitive states relevant to practice on a path to liberation. The teachings of Lo-Rig explain what the mind is and how it works.
